Kansas Sec. of State Kobach’s Office Puts Out Spanish Voter Guide With Wrong Deadline
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is well known for his anti-immigrant views and connections to far right white nationalist organizations, and in 2012 he tried to get President Obama removed from presidential election ballots in the state because, he said, there was evidence Obama’s birth certificate was faked. He’s also the guy who advised Mitt Romney on his infamous “self-deportation” scheme.
So does anyone actually believe this was just an honest mistake? Kobach’s Office Puts Out Spanish Voter Guide With Wrong Registration Deadline.
The Spanish-language voter guides from Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office include two errors about registering to vote in the state, while the English guides do not include the same errors.
The Spanish-language guides said that voters could register up to 15 days before the election, while the English version included the correct deadline, 21 days before the election, as the Daily Kos flagged last week. And while the English guides told voters they could use their passport as a photo ID, the guides in Spanish did not include a passport in the list.
With this background, at the very least there should be an investigation; but this is Kansas we’re talking about.
